"It's Easy" (originally "It's So Easy") is a song written by Brian Bell in 2003 for Weezer. It was finally released as an iTunes Exclusive Bonus Track with the purchase of The Red Album.

History

2003 Demo

"It's Easy" was first introduced to the band as a demo during an August 3, 2003 rehearsal at Rod Cervera's studio. At the time, it was called "It's So Easy." Prior to its release, Karl Koch listed the song as one of his top five favorite unreleased Weezer songs on the Albumsix forums. The song went unheard by fans until it was released (under the title "It's Easy") in 2008 as an iTunes-exclusive pre-order bonus with Red, which was released on June 3rd. In an Albumsix chat, Karl was asked why the song was released, to which he responded: "I have a way of reminding people of their former glories."

Live Performance

"It's Easy" was performed live by the band for the all-acoustic 2008 AOL Sessions. Some lyrics were slightly altered from the original demo.

Lyrics

Let's not be mean to each other
There's no need for name-calling
There's no need for chain-ballin'
Let's be nice, babe. It won't kill us

Let's just be kind to each other
There's no need to argue further
There's no need to change up order
Let's be nice, babe. It won't kill us

I caught you, I called you on it
You lied to me, you lied all about it
Give it time, give it up
Draw the line, raise the cup
It's easy not to be mean

Let's work it through and discuss it
There's no need for the cussin'
There's no use for ball-bustin'
Let's be nice, babe. It won't kill us

All this time we could've got along
Instead we bitch and moan
You done me wrong
Give it time, give it up
Draw the line, raise the cup
It's easy not to be mean

I caught you. I called you on it
You lied to me, you lied all about it
Give it time, give it up
Draw the line, raise the cup
It's easy not to be mean

It's so easy
